We Never Walk Alone

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

His Presence

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

My husband got home this morning. He was getting ready to leave to run some errands and he gave me a kiss on the back of the neck (swoon!) All afternoon, I could smell his cologne. Mmmmm…… but it made me think if he wasn’t around, I wouldn’t be sniffing his cologne long after I […]

What a great story! The line about the dog making an inmate cry made me sad. Puppies Go To Prison To Become Dogs That Save Lives
